The Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) has taken tight security arrangements in and around the city marking the National Mourning Day on August 15.

Security measures have been beefed up at Bangabandhu Memorial Museum at Dhanmondi 32 and Banani Graveyard in the city, DMP commissioner Mohammad Asaduzzaman Miah said on Sunday.

The DMP boss said this while addressing a press conference after inspecting the security measurement at Dhanmondi 32, reports UNB.

The areas in and around the Bangabandhu Memorial Museum and Banani Graveyard will be brought under CCTV surveillance system and real time monitoring, Miah said, adding, plainclothes detectives will be deployed in the areas to ward off any untoward incident.

Several check posts will be set up around Dhanmondi 32 and the visitors have to go through the archways to enter the area, he added.

“River police and members of Fire Service and Civil Defense will be patrolling at Dhanmondi Lake. Every residence in and around Dhanmondi 32 will be brought under the purview of search,” Miah said.

The DMP commissioner asked the city dwellers to enter Dhanmondi 32 maintaining discipline and not to carry any types of bag, vanity bags, food carriers, explosive substances and sharp materials.

All types of vehicular movement from Sonargaon crossing, City College and Dhanmondi 27 to Dhamnondi 32 will be put on hold to ensure tight security, Asaduzzaman said, adding, visitors have to cross the respective roads on foot.

Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) team, dog squad, bomb disposal unit will be kept ready to fend off any trouble, Miah continued.

He also urged the city dwellers to help the law enforcers to maintain discipline.
